First it was Garner, then Raleigh.Now, there's been a bear sighting in Cary.

For the third time in a week, a black bear has a Triangle neighborhood on alert.

Cary Police say they started getting calls around 8:00 Saturday morning about a bear seen walking around the Wellington Park subdivision.

Many kids in the neighborhood were kept inside for the day, though no sightings were reported in the afternoon.

People are urged to leave a bear alone if they see it - and call local officials, though they say the bear will likely go away on its own.
